Walmart to start PS4 and Xbox One in-store pre-orders on Aug. 24

If you have not yet pre-ordered a PS4 or Xbox One, time is running out but you will have one more opportunity to guarantee yourself a PS4 and Xbox One on launch day. On Aug. 16, it was revealed that Walmart will begin taking in-store pre-orders for the PS4 and Xbox One very soon. (PS4, Xbox One)

That most likely means we'll get a release date from both MS and Sony soon. I'm excited!
SillyYou  +   627d ago
Sony already said they will give the release date on gamescom. And MS probably too.
GraveLord  +   627d ago
Gamescom most likely.

Ahhh thank god. It was impossible for me to preorder a PS4 in other stores ! D:

It's strange that Walmart are only just taking preorders and asda in the uk who are part of the Walmart group have been taking preorders authorised by sony since E3.
TheUndertaker85  +   627d ago
Walmart has been taking preorders via their website, just not in store.

I live it how all these articles about ps4/xbox 180 always has a picture of the ps4, just goes to show its a right looker.

And don't forget all those disaster articles before the DRM reversal with Don Mattrick's mug on the picture. I am glad he is gone but man those pictures were hilarious.

Already got my 2 confirmed launch day PS4's preordered as soon as they were able to be preordered.

You snooze you loose.
GentlemenRUs  +   627d ago
That better be 2 for personal use only... No selling one of them on EBAY!
Roper316  +   627d ago
1 for the bedroom & 1 for the family room. BF4, KZ:SF & Watchdogs for me & Knack for my daughter. May still get a few more games too depending on what else gets announced @ GC & TGS as launch games.
GentlemenRUs  +   627d ago

Finally! Someone who actually plays them and not buys multiple to make a quick buck on EBAY!

Hell the kids can go to town on my old 360! Nobodys touching the PS4 thats serious business!!!!!

Target starts soon, also.
Eonjay  +   627d ago
Can you imagine being in one of those Walmart launch lines... no thanks guys. I'm really good.
TheUndertaker85  +   627d ago
Unless you have an "in" with Walmart employees who could potentially get you the product before official launch happens... >.>

Just saying. Then you don't have to worry about lines and could get your hands on it before many others.

My girl is a manager at Walmart. I always planned to get my PS4 through them. She gets a 20% discount just for being a manager and around November they give out another 20% to promote shopping. That's a 40% discount.

That means i'll be getting a PS4, Camera, and a controller for about $340. CAN YOU SAY WINNING!!!!
koolaid251  +   627d ago
All Walmart employees only get 10%off!!!
JRH7783  +   626d ago
@koolaid251.... You don't know what you're talking about. Managers get 20% off. Regular employees get 10%. LOL...
TheUndertaker85  +   626d ago
JRH speaks the truth, at least partially. Some management get 20% off versus the 10% regular employees get. There's also a little over a month period at the end of the year where their discounts get doubled for the holidays, so 20% for regular employees and 40% for management. It's also the only time of the year Walmart employees get discounts on most food related items.

My bro and I waited at a Walmart line for the Wii. We were the first in line and waited 24 hours. When we first got there they acted surprised(live in a small town and no systems had came out for a while)when we told them we wanted to be the first to get a Wii. It was fun but, never again lol. It was fun to be the first though. I love all my gaming memories.

Liar there is no Walmart in NYC trust me I actually live here
TheFutureIsBlue  +   627d ago
Goes to show that you can't trust skynet.
Ipunchbabiesforfun  +   627d ago
Makes sense, they probably have an exact allotment now. So they can divide that up by stores dependent on the sales of that particular store.
TimeSkipLuffy  +   627d ago
MediaMarkt in Germany is offering a BF4, Fifa 14 or NFS for free with a PS4 or X1 pre-order starting tomorrow until 08/24!!! Thanks GamesCom!!! :3
Deathdeliverer  +   627d ago
I got my wii u from Walmart day 1 this way but damn was it a headache. They didn't even know about it even though it was in the ad. Long story.
